A former Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran, has predicted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would return to power in 2019.
According to him, the party has purged itself of impunity and imposition of candidates at elections.
Adeniran, who is eyeing the party’s national chairmanship stool, promised to lead the PDP to victory if given the opportunity.
The former minister, who stated this in Abuja while receiving a delegation of a PDP support group, charged members to be dedicated to the ideals of the party ahead of its December national convention.
“If elected national chairman, I will deliver the Presidency for PDP in 2019. We are not gunning for the office for the fun of it or because we want to be chairman of the largest party, the PDP.
“The purpose is that by the grace of God and with you, we will put an end to impunity and imposition in the party. We know what Nigeria has been going through. The PDP will take-over and we will demonstrate what it means to give power to the people.
“Kindly go back and let’s reach every nook and cranny of this country, keep a checklist of those who are yet to be reached. We want to bring everybody on board and we trust you can do that,” Adeniran said.
Adeniran is contesting the chairmanship position, with a former Deputy National Chairman (Southwest), Chief Olabode George and a former Minister, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja.
